A potent, cask strength release from Laphroaig.

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Laphroaig is famous for producing some of the smokiest Whisky in the world with a distinct flavour, in huge part influenced by the vicinity of the coast and the high moss content of its peat.

We’re talking about Whisky royalty right here, so it’s no wonder this is also the favourite Whisky of Prince Charles, who gave Laphroaig permission to use his royal warrant on all the bottles. Their core line up has no fewer than a dozen single malt drams plus a host of special releases and travel retail editions.

Everybody knows their 10 YO, one of Scotland’s most distinguished malts. This right here is his big, rugged brother. Laphroaig 10 YO Cask Strength is non chill-filtered and bottled at 57.8% ABV, which means you can enjoy the dram exactly as it was made. We recommend cooling it down with a bit of water though to soften the blow and allow for the release of the rich aroma of peat, spice and sea. It’s up to you to bring out the best in him.

This is definitely not a beginner dram. In fact, we would argue, this is such an intense and complex dram that only true Whisky connoisseurs can fully appreciate. Some say that good Whisky is like friendship: rich, warm and strong. Well, if that’s the case, you might have just found your best friend. With that said, it’s also up to him to bring the best out of you.

This is my favorite Scotch. Runner up is Ardbeg. I also like Glenfiddich, usually 12 yr.

Ok, it's like smoking a pipe, while stranded at sea, in the middle of a rain storm, with seaweed smacking you in the face. But in a good way. Really good!

Obvious peaty influence that finishes nice with water added. Smokey with a medium warming.

I am not much of a fan of the medicinal taste as much as I thought I was.

Reginald,
Akin to sipping liquid funk. Not to my taste.
Richard
Richard,
I just adore cask strength. Really let's you see the whisky evolve with water. It's classic Laphroaig with smoke, Band-Aids,and then cherries and fruit with water. Really good. Batch 007
Roger
Roger,
Bottled perfection. Love it.
Chris
Chris,
Probably the greatest introduction to Islay whiskies on the market. It does punch you in the face, but once your olfactory senses are used to it, opens up and reveals the other flavors in its profile.
Chrisman
Chrisman,
It's got the peat I like. But I like Lagavulin 16-year-old better.
Brandon
Brandon,
Fruity. Next to no bite.

It's like being hit in the teeth with a glowing log from last night's campfire on a damp autumn morning and then that log quickly becomes your new best friend.
